labeled as "BMW X6 Performance Unlimited" but no performance upgrades listed, why would you buy this car then.

It's a BMW if you put performance as part of the model name I expect it to be able to smoke the tires.

You guys don't like the rims? I thought they look nice, although Japan pays crazy money for vehicles there.

I get what every is saying about not understanding the point, but I like the concept. I wouldn't personally buy one at over $100K, but people pay for exclusivity and that is the purpose of this vehicle. Price is only an issue in absence of value.

Cheers,
Tony

I think BMW is being smart about this. Think about it. Most people who buy X6 don't care about performance, they just but the car for image and look. So why not spend a little money and make a special edition and charge ton of money for it? The way I look at it, the more money they make on these cars the more budget they will have to develop the real performance model on their lineup and that is a good thing for enthusiasts like us.

Sick car and sick idea.. I love the exclusivity idea of it. They will sell out in minutes.
